    Not having all the Cannon films on Blu should be considered a crime.

    Agreed. And they are the bulk of the MGM library now. Very few UA are not on Blu. Would be funny if Twilight Time released TWILIGHT TIME. A quirky little movie now showing on Amazon Prime

    Your list is quite extensive, and nice to see these titles collected here. But your choices of what to highlight in bold are, of course, highly subjective ones. Personally, I would highlight RETURN OF THE SECAUCUS 7, TICKET TO HEAVEN, DON'T CRY IT'S ONLY THUNDER, THE GREY FOX, THE LONELY PASSION OF JUDITH HEARNE, THE CHOCOLATE WAR, CRUSOE, DOMINICK AND EUGENE & FAREWELL TO THE KING as being among the more important titles. FYI: The 1988 film is not called WORLD'S APART, but rather A WORLD APART. WORLDS APART was a 2008 film and an entirely different story. THE BALLAD OF GREGORIO CORTEZ has been released on Blu by Criterion, and PRANCER is on Blu from Shout! Factory.

    Excellent listings. I would hope that The Grey Fox and Cattle Annie both make the journey to Blu. IMHO The Grey Fox was one of the outstanding films of the 80’s.

    Agreed. CATTLE ANNIE is an unsung classic as well

    Kiss of the Spiderwoman was released on Blu Ray several years ago as a "Collector's Edition" that included a nearly 2 hour documentary. Available on Amazon, but only through third party sellers.

    1988 - Patty Hearst
    Available on DVD-R from Amazon thru MGM home video. It was also recently put up in Vudu’s “free with ads” section, though in SD only. Apparently there is no HD transfer the film.

    Cotton Club is available on a Region free blu although package lists it as Region B locked. "Dreamchild" is a film of almost no reputation, probably due to its tricky, uncomfortable subject matter. I'm the only person I know who's actually seen it. But it is wonderful and had some great Jim Henson creature effects.

    DREAMCHILD I saw in a theater in NYC on opening weekend in October 1985. Its a shame Corale Brown ( Mrs Vincent Price) was denied an Oscar nomination. She was brilliant capturing a very delicate emotional tightrope walk . Its a masterpiece of style and acting. It would look amazing in HD. Thanks for heads up on Patty Hearst...I will check out Vudu
